the party. >> all right. let's go to tina brown now. i'll give you a choice, the obama conquest, lucky general or master of the game? you want to answer the question? or should we talk about general petraeus? >> how can we resist talking about general petraeus. you know, this whole thing has turned into the most wild steamy complex soap opera that it's just unbelievable. i mean every day a fresh detail, you know, emerges. now we have general allen in the mix. it's almost -- you've got these two women, the brunette bombshell of the high command kelley and the well-toned paula broadwell, with the counterinsurgent smile. it's becoming insane by the minute. i think it's a tragedy to lose petraeus, i do. i think the guy's so stellar and so honorable and so, you know, so important right now. >> it's also a tragedy for all of the families involved. and i wonder would the reporters you have working on "newsweek" and "the daily beast," has anything come across your desk that really questions national security? that really brings this to the forefront beyond salaciousness? >> not yet. not

go. you had a great interview, it's up right now with david axelrod, kind of a postmortem after the election. what jumped out at you talking to him? >> i went to obama headquarters in chicago on friday, the last day that it was in operation, all the joyful young people were -- it was like the last day of school. >> you really are 102. using the term "joyful young people." go ahead. >> they were trading gmails, hugging each other as they headed out. and david axelrod sat down, put up his feet on his desk and talked a little bit about the campaign. and i asked him about the biggest mistakes the romney campaign made. and he told us that he had expected that back january, february, march before the obama campaign really had its footing, that the republican outside groups, the super pacs, would really hammer president obama on deficit deficits, kind of put him in a hole on that, and set the narrative of what axelrod said he was afraid of, a gold watch strategy, setting the idea that president obama was an historic figure. he was a good guy, but he just didn't get it done. on the other ha

the right and the conservative entertainment complex, barack obama's team is organizing. and they're targeting. and instead of talking about conspiracies in the media, josh, they're targeting voters in ohio. instead of talking about how the polls are skewed, they're making phone calls. while we are basically in this cocoon where our websites, our tv shows and our radio shows, talk show hosts are telling us, everything's okay. you're going to win. and anybody that says otherwise is just a part of the left-wing socialist conspiracy. >> i think that's why there was that thunderstruck disbelief among conservatives and apparently among romney himself the day after the election that they had actually lost. they didn't belief it would happen. and i think if romney had had a chance to break free of that entertainment complex, hadn't felt obligated to consistently kind of pander to it in his ineffective style, it would be more like the romney in the first debate who had that broader appeal that you're talking about, he might have been more successful. >> i'm going to save the super pacs $1 bi

already starting down this path of underestimating the intelligence of his own party. >> right. and so you begin to wonder what he going to say on a whole host of other issues. it reminds me of what mayor bloomberg said when he endorsed barack obama after hurricane sandy. he said basically there's one guy that believes in science and one guy that doesn't seem to. and that's a problem for the republican party. do they want to become across as the party that doesn't believe in science? whether it's to do with darwinism or the evolution of mankind, whether it's to do with climate change and denying the science on that. that's something the party's going to have to wrestle with. and if that gets caught up in the primary process and marco rubio already four years out is falling into the trap of having to appease the wing of his party that will drag, you know, where are they going to go in the next election if they keep getting dragged in the primary process to a point where they are unelectable come the general election. >> yeah. and i -- >> people think this is -- they know this is dumb. >

right that the obama vision is too centered on government but his is too centered on the promotion of business and wealth creation at the expense of everything else. >> a very long excerpt. john, we'll have you on when your new book comes out and read the first three chapters. a fascinating bit of information. your wife worked here for a very long time. >> she did, almost two decades. she worked for "saturday night live" for almost 20 years. >> fantastic. so she's moved on to greener pastures. >> she has moved on to other pastures. she is now a talent agent at icm. so this is interesting. i've been on many other floors of this 30 rock but not this one. >> this is homecoming for him. >> and he used to have his own table at the rainbow room. >> did he really? >> if only that were true. i bet he did. so let's talk about your column and talk about republicans wringing their hands. i never understood in '94 when i came in and somebody said not really sure why we republicans imbraced big business the way we did when the street always voted against us. wrote checks against us. there was this
